Hello, I have trouble with my repository.

I reached the max size of my repo (2.1 gb).

I delete 4 branch to solve the issue. Every branch has a file of 195 mb.

I still see that the size of the repo is 2.1 gb.

Does anyone know the reason?

Hi @nicolaterramagrasevenit,

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

Removing branches in Git will not affect the size of your repository, branches are just pointers to different commits. In order to reduce the size you need to undo the last push and also removing large files from the history. Take a look at Reduce repository size for instructions on what needs to be done.
